  • Three days in the red

    I have to say that I had forgotten that logging is actually kind of fun . . . and eye-opening!  I do love how simple MFP makes tracking food and their database is amazing.  But I really hate how many calories and how much fat are in the foods I love....

  • It's not just a pair of socks

    Today in the morning, I searched under our bed for the socks I thought I had to wear when I went to bed last night. I am not sure how I do it, but I think I pull them off during the night, and then somehow the poor socks fly through the bedroom and e...

  • Why did I change my username?

    This is my first blog since June of last year.  For months before that I was trying to learn to eat like a thin person.  I wanted to lose weight without tracking, weighing, or measuring.  I mean really -- lots of people do it.  Why couldn't I learn t...

  • How to – Food Prep | Sandwiches

    I like taking sandwiches to work. They’re light (the way I make em), economical in calories, and they don’t make a mess. The problem is, even next day sandwiches can get soggy. And I want to make sandwiches for 4 days, ahead of time – (M-TH - I work ...

  • The fat lady is (not) an expert!

    Ten years ago, I gave up smoking, what turned me into the worst ex-smoker known to mankind. I had done it! I had given up cigarettes, and from that moment on, I became a merciless critique of everybody who still dared to smoke around me.Overnight I h...

  • I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)

    So I've mentioned before that I have had a Fitbit for a year and I simply love it. I love all of the stats and encouragement it provides. In a year, my step goal has risen from 8000 to 15,000 and I regularly have 20,000 step days, which on my stubby ...

  • We've Only Just Begun

    So I've been taking a weekly yoga class for a few months now and I'm really enjoying it. It's not too hippy-dippy for my taste, and the instructor gives clear instructions but also says a lot of inspirational things. She also helps me up when I can't...

  • The Perfect Scale for Weighing In!

    Part of the game here on MFP is to weigh in. There are discussions as to how often, what brand of scale to buy, and even the most favorable conditions to weigh in under (I wrote that!) Today I was thinking about the best scale for weighing in. Why? M...
